Safety is a core value and is the responsibility of all working in Koncrex.
Health and safety policy
Koncrex’s health and safety policy applied rigorously across all Group companies, is to:
Comply, at a minimum, with all applicable legislation and continually improve our health and safety stewardship towards industry best practice
Ensure that our employees and contractors respect the Group’s health and safety imperatives
Ensure that our companies provide a healthy and safe workplace for our employees and contractors, and take due care of all customers and visitors at our locations
Require all our company employees and contractors to work in a safe manner as mandated by law and industry best practice.
Health and safety management
Health and safety management is a daily priority of line management in every Koncrex company and location. This line responsibility continues up to Divisional Managing Director, the Chief Executive Officer and ultimately to Koncrex Board level. Safety Officers work closely with and assist line managers in developing safety management and improving safety performance. Koncrex health and safety management systems are well established and are regularly reviewed taking into account industry best practice. Knowledge-sharing around the Group also plays an important part in this process.
Koncrex intensified its efforts to eliminate fatalities from all operations and introduced enhanced procedures to ensure that circumstances surrounding such events are promptly identified and that lessons learned are communicated throughout the Group as a matter of urgency. The elimination of fatalities remains a key objective across Koncrex.
Over the last decade, both Group Accident Frequency and Severity Rates have significantly improved. Koncrex’s goal is zero fatalities and zero accidents. Due to the nature and size of Koncrex’s businesses, these are extremely challenging goals. Koncrex will continue to devote substantial management and employee time and all the appropriate resources to this area to progress Group performance towards these targets.
